Risotto & Mushrooms, I Hope You Are Well, News and Tears are tracks composed in October/November 2009 ... memory of a meeting and a concert with MCVulcano, AQM Abhorrent and Beauty ... sounds refer to an atmosphere of intense knowledge and friendship, an exchange of lives in another possible world: the world of sounds. Lullaby is a track composed in December 2009… an attempt to expand a quartet of violas and cellos… Oh, my dear love! Is a sentimental research into sounds… each sound...

"Die! Avant-Garde" is the Third Official record by Radio for the Daydreamers. Aloof and completely detached from the ongoing triptych (Praying for the Be(a)st), this record is breathing space for our minds and concentrates on a different chaotic wile.

"Style of this album is a Poem core. Based on the impact of the Japanese sub-culture (anime, music, comedy, game, radio) it was created in a room of small dark home. It is said to emerge from the magnificent strain of day-to-day trivial matters. In this album, abstract language has been used in addition to the Japanese. Even a man speaking in Japanese when listening will not understand half. I believe that there is value in that kind of chaos." - BOOL Topics: Experimental, Electronic, Poem Core, Spoken Word, Ambient, Abstract, Creative Commons, Black Square

This album was dedicated to those days in our lives that we forgot because we thought they were irrelevant. This is meant to be heard by people who believe in magic and people who believe in stories. Chaos ensues. We shall not pray to any god, but to our own. We shall love people who dream and people who need a little more gasoline. Reject the beauty, before it dare rejects you.

"parede que me toca" reunites three works: "mirrita": From the sound of the machine, other sounds are perceived as organic. They are not, but the machine is built by man. The silence interrupts the machine. The animal deflagrates. It challenges it but it is not freed from it. The machine is there. So is the human; "comoção": It begins with a blow that turns into a wave of noise. Another comes. The noise reveals itself human and makes us feel something;...
